Battlefield 1 Announced
Dice released an official trailer for the next iteration of Battlefield, Battlefield 1. The new game is set in World War I. To better describe the game, Dice has released an article alongside the teaser. Some interesting snippets from the article:
With Battlefield 1 we set out to create some of the largest, most dynamic battles in FPS history while continuing to tap into what fans love most about the franchise. One of the things that makes World War I such an amazing era is just how advanced it really was. Almost everything that you know about the conflicts of the next century, from the massive battles across land, air and sea, to the powerful and efficient weaponry, is there. Tanks, planes, machine guns, artillery – a lot of the tech you’ve used in other Battlefield games was perfected during this era, letting the classic Battlefield DNA shine through.
The game will cater to much of what fans have come to expect from the Battlefield franchise, destruction and large scale battles.
You’ll be able to join in massive 64-player battles and experience unexpected Only in Battlefield moments in a setting where the old world was destroyed, giving way to the new one. We’re turning destruction up a few notches too, so expect some surprises when you hit the battlefield.
If you are interested in jumping in early to the beta, this can be accomplished two ways, either attending the EA Play event ind Los Angeles and London on June 12, or by accessing the open beta through EA Insider (probably the more viable of the two).
As with most releases, expect more to be revealed as the game moves towards it’s October 18th release. Check out the new teaser below:
